October Featured Artist!
Beginning late September and running through the month of October 2013, I will have a solo exhibit at The Hastens Store in Dallas! This is a Swedish store that sells high quality hand-made beds. They have huge dark blue walls that will show my work nicely! The owners are all from Sweden and are so great to work with. When I visited with them to show them my work, they immediately wanted me to be their October artist. Of course, that means that I will not have a new collection to show. But, I have some older pieces that have not been shown anywhere for a long time. I think they will look really fresh in this space. And, my more recent pieces will be on display too. I am currently working on four commissioned pieces that have a deadline of early October. So, this prevents me from devoting much time to a new collection.
Last week, one of my newer pieces, “Orange Square” 42X42, acrylic on canvas panel, sold at the Goss-Michael Gallery in Dallas. It sold during an auction benefiting The Family Place. I donated 50% of the sale to The Family Place. It was very exciting for me to be showing my work, if ever so briefly, in the Goss-Michael Gallery!
With each sale, I continue to donate at least 10% of the sale to charity. This began with the West, Texas explosion. I donated 10% of the sale of a painting to The Fallen Firefighters Foundation. After that, I just decided to keep donating! It’s the right thing to do!
